This is it folks! The final day of release week and I hope you have had fun seeing all of the inspiration that the CAS-ual Fridays Team has created. I know it has been a blast to share my projects with all of you. Pssst - make sure you check out the CAS-ual Fridays Blog for information on a giveaway and how you can get yourself entered to win! Today we are sharing the Tin Roof stamp set which is perfect for background and the Smile die...
This card was sort of a happy accident as far as the background is concerned. I had wanted to use fun bright colors but with varying shades, so I grabbed one of my neon ombre ink pads, I then inked the whole thing once for one side and again for the other side making sure that the same colors touched each other in the middle. I loved the look of it, but boooooo I had made a little mistake and pushed a little too hard on the corner of the panel... so I decided to try restamping this background on another panel but with my blue ombre ink pad... this time the inking turned out perfectly fine but the colors didn't pack the punch I was going for. So with a little creative cutting I was able to combine the two backgrounds into one and ta-da!!! I then diecut the word smile three times, twice on white card stock and a third time a piece that I had run my ombre ink pad over. I layered them all together and added Wink of Stella to the top layer for that extra POW! I finished it all off with a strip of black card stock and some paneling.
That's all from me, don't forget to stop over on the CAS-ual Fridays Blog for more inspiration and a chance to win a $15 certificate to the store!
I am a SAHM to two beautiful (and no way am I biased! ) children... Aiden and Madeline! I have a wonderful hubby who not only lets me continue in my crafty addictions, but he supports it! ( I know! My jaw is dropped too! ) I have been an addict to papercrafts for little over 5 years now, and I'm even more so now that I have discovered the wonderful world of blogging! Thank you all for taking the time to look at my work and for your ever encouraging comments!!!
